Sorry I am busy adding up figures for my tax return so it had to wait until I took a break.

So late? Mine was done and dusted in September  (late for me) and paid before Christmas.

Cant understand why people leave it until the last few weeks.

No, not late at all: there are a full three weeks until the deadline. I normally reserve the second week of January for the task - I see that last year I paid the bill on the 15th so in fact I am early this year. The only time that my scheduling misfired was 2011 when we had our house fire and had to move out to b&b: I had to do all the form-filling in the library, whose computers could be used by each person for only an hour per day, so I was slightly later that year!

Personally i like to get rid of it as soon as I can. I normally pay the forthcoming July balancing payment at the same time as the January one so I don't forget.

Having all but stopped work I've only got to do it once more after the end of my financial year next April.

Well, you have your preferred schedule and I have mine, and as long as they both work for us (barring any further house fires) that's fine. I make only one payment per year, not sure what a "balancing" payment is, but they haven't asked me for one.

Looks like you have lost weight Biz, there is hardly anything of you now! 😁

He would have lost a lot of blood when someone shoved his head through that glass door, I'm not surprised he's not looking his best.

Seems strange to me that when white folk have dreads, it's due to being a mucky oik who doesn't brush or wash their hair, but the rastas I know spend hours cleaning and caring for their locks.  The crusties give people the idea that locks are dirty, when in fact it's the complete opposite.

A bit of a generalisation there... Do you know any white people with dreads?🤔

I used to see a fair few in Brighton. The annoying bit about them was that they put on fake Ja. accents.

My OH had dreadlocks when we met nearly 20 years ago and I assure you that she spent more time tending her hair than any lass I'd previously shared bathroom space with. 

I wouldn't take that one example and assume that all white dread heads are the epitome of hirsutorial elegance though... 

 

I try to avoid generalisations.

Well in the olden days (pre 2008!) you could get interest worth mentioning on your tax money, so paying the bill as late as possible made sense.  Doing your online return before the computers crash in the last week of January makes sense though.

As a Yorkshireman I sympathise with the rastafarian claim to exclusive rights to the wearing of dreadlocks. 

I am starting a campaign to stop non-yorkshire folk eating our puddings. 

Cultural appropriation at its most insidious. 

Nah, no one else want short arms and long pockets. Tha'll be reet lad.
